[EVENT] Ultimate Student DJ Competition with Cam FM and Big Fish – Sunday 9th November
Think you can DJ? Prove it… At Lola Lo!!!
Cam FM and Big Fish are running Cambridge’s biggest student DJ competition this term and if you think you’ve got what it takes (or know someone who does…) then this is for you!
On Sunday November 9th we’ll be pitting the best of the best Cambridge student DJs against one another in an epic battle to the death (ok, maybe not quiet that far) to find out who will win the title of Cambridge’s greatest student DJ legend. The winner will have the opportunity to gain a residency at one of Big Fish’s nights, a Big Fish VIP card (Q jump, and free entry +1 at all big fish nights) and will receive a bottle of Vodka to enjoy with their friends for the rest of the night. Runner up will receive a Big Fish VIP card and a bottle of bubbly.
If you want to enter, please just fill your details in on the form at this link and tell us why you think you should be given the chance to win and show off your DJing prowess at Lola Lo.
Entries close at 6pm on Wednesday 5th November and we’ll announce the final qualifying competitors on 7th.

[SOCIETY ADVERT] Cambridge University Railway Club
I am the president of a little gem of a society within Cambridge where we meet top leading professionals of an industry employing thousands of bright graduates. It is not accountancy or law, but the love of the railways!
The Cambridge University Railway Club is the second oldest railway club in the UK, we meet weekly on either Wednesdays or Fridays to hear from directors of travel and freight operating companies as well as leading figures from Network Rail, HS2, DfT, Hitachi and several other leading railway industry players (even model trains!)
The role of meeting is to hear from these speakers about the operations of their businesses on the railways, whether this is about fare pricing, open access, intermodal freight, new line construction, day to day operation or just loving trains; we have a wide selection of speakers to hear from. Recent highlights have included DRS, HS2, Network Rail and Hitachi.
As well as speaker events, we arrange visits to railway sites around the country. Recently this has included Plasser UK and RVEL and this academic year we are looking forward to visiting Old Oak Common (First Great Western), Siemens (Manchester) and the GCR Nottinghamshire to have a cab ride in the HST prototype 41001.
If you are interested in knowing more or coming along please do drop me or the secretary an email. Or come along to a speaker event this Wednesday 29th with Ian Yeowart of Alliance Rail talking on Open Access in the UK or Andy Cooper next week from Cross Country Trains – whether you have a specific question as to why they have never refurbished the Voyagers, where they think the industry is going or just want to hear from a top railway professional (even if not to network for graduate employment) the CURC warmly invites you to do so in the William Thatcher Room, Fitzwilliam College from 20:30.
